We are participating in the TU/e Contest of 2019. This is a challenge for student teams, people with innovative ideas, or people who already have a prototype they want to share with the world. The contest offers contacts with big companies as well as workshops on how to improve your project. In short, it is a great opportunity for everyone who has a great idea!
“Since the first edition back in 2015, the TU/e Contest offers students every year the opportunity to further develop their own, ingenious ideas, prototypes and research projects in Minimal Viable Products and business plans.” -TU/e Contest.
This contest also features a networking round, in which all the teams consult their network to get as much people to vote for them as possible. The team with the most votes gets another 400 euro at the Grand Finale of the contest. We can proudly say that Team CORE has won the networking round!!! The contest is still going, so all we can do now is work hard to get into the finals!!
Update (May, 2019): in the meantime, the Top 20 has been announced and we are very proud that we can say that we have already come so far. The announcement came exactly on the day it was planned, which made us all very excited to see who made it to the Top 20. A celebration then followed when we found out that we made it to the Top 20!!! That means we are another step closer to the finals. The team is already working very hard to make sure that the pitch will go well during the finals.
Update (June, 2019): Team CORE has won the TU/e contest in the category Student Teams!!! We are very happy and want to thank everyone that has supported us during the contest. We also want to thank the TU/e, Innovation Space and Soapbox for making this event possible!!!
